Hellblazer #261

Written by Peter Milligan
Art by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Stefano Landini

I've been unable to make up my mind about Milligan's run on Hellblazer. Some issues have been fantastic, while others have been lackluster. This new arc sends John to India, because he's still looking for ways to resurrect Phoebe, and feels that a fellow Englishman there has a way to 'purify' his soul enough to get the job done.

Milligan seems to be on more familiar ground here, establishing a number of new characters and potential plotlines. There is a Bollywood movie mogul with a connection to an old English spirit, as well as a couple of police detectives who are investigating a string of murdered girls.

There is more than enough to keep me intrigued for this arc, and Camuncoli and Landini are always good.
